Valentine's Mantle

My Valentine's mantle is complete. It really is appropriate for any time of the year. 
My theme comes straight from the Word:
 LOVE from the Father and his commandment for us to LOVE one Another.
 I added two new pieces since my last post. I had plans for a couple more too, and then I realized that Valentine's Day is less than a week away! I guess I'll work on those for next year.
 I created this little 5x7 "Oh How HE Loves us" canvas in only a couple of minutes!
 First I painted the canvas red. Add white vinyl letters and a ribbon around the edge. So simple!
What a great reminder for everyday, OH How HE Loves US!

My next project was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest. 
I found all the supplies among my craft stuff! Yeah! I gathered some red buttons...
 Wrapped a 5 x 7 canvas in burlap (you know how I LOVE burlap!)
 Stapled around the edges (don't worry, I cover those staples!)
 Created a heart template so I'd get the basic shape when adhering my buttons.
 I used regular tacky glue for each button (no picture of that part-but you get the idea!)
And then I added ribbon around the edges using glue dots.
I love the combinations of textures and colors.
 Don't ever forget:
 John 13:34 "Love one another"
 Happy Valentine's Day!

  4. Chessa- your mantle looks awesome. Love the vinyl letter canvas! Definitely words to remember all year long! And I have that button card pinned too! I had planned to make a shadowbox framed with the buttons but know I'm never going to get to it for this year...maybe next year! I love the burlap on that one too! TFS!
